Default 10 Minute Block Variation (On Point).. .pdf now attached to post 3

This tutorial for a 3" Finished block. (This block could be done another way... this is just how I did it.)

Step 1 - Cut a 5" Square



Step 2 -Cut 5" Square into 4 triangles on the diagonal




Step 3 - Cut 4 .75" Square
. (I folded it in half both ways for center reference)



Step 4 - Fold 4.75" Square in half - wrong sides together. This picture shows how the pieces will be laid out when sewn together.



Step 5 - Place one triangle on the back side of the folded square with raw edges together and with right sides of fabric together.



Step 6 - Place another triangle on the top side of the folded square with raw edges together and with right sides of fabric together.



Step 7 - This is how it should look before sewing it together. Sew along the short edge of the folded 4.75" square.



Step 8 - Do both sides of the 4.75" square in the same manner.




Step 9 - Open the triangles and prepare to iron them open.




Step 10 - Iron triangles so wrong sides are together.

Step 11 - Open folded 4.75 square




Step 12 - Fold piece so that the 4.75" square is now folded in the opposite direction and line up the center seams and triangles




Step 13 - Pin at center and at the ends of the 4.75" square



Step 14 - Sew along long side of the 4.75" square (and triangles)



Step 15 - Open block and iron



Step 16 - Cut 2.5" center square, place into center of the 4.75 square



Step 17 - Fold edges of 4.75" square over the edges of the 2.5" block, iron and sew



Step 18 - Sew edges of 4.75" square



Step 19 - Trim block down down to 3.5"




Sew final blocks together to create a cathedral window looking quilt.




You can trim the blocks to the 3.5" and sew them together to create to top prior to folding the windows to reduce the bulk going through your machine.

Default 10 Min Block Variation#1(pdf) & #2

Just thought I would share some new information with you.

After I got home, I made a test block using the tradition 10 minute block method to see what a full size window block required. Here's what I found out. First determine what you want your finished block size to be. In this case 7", you will then need 4 blocks to be 4" (or 1/2 of the 7" plus a 1/2", so that when they are sewn using the 10MB construction method, it will give you the starting 7 1/2" to finish at 7"); 1 block needs to be 7 1/2" when sewn using the 10MB construction method, it will finish at 7", and one block for the center window square at 4 1/2". I measured the finished inner square which was 5" and cut the window square a 1/2" smaller to reduce bulk. When completely finished I had an attractive block if I do say so.


For a traditional 10 minute block cathedral window style my test blocks were
4) 4 blocks
1) 7.5 (7 1/2") block
1) 4.5 (4 1/2") block for the center window


I am going to have to make a quilt using thing technique now; I love how quickly it went together.

Here's a pdf of the 10MB Variation On-Point that I tried to upload in the tutorials as well.
